Inaccessible without a car but this is a hidden treasure and paradise. Huge farm and close to nature away from the bustling town. Clean and very comfortable. Hospitable host makes it a pleasant and memorable getaway.

Wonderful location. Very welcoming hosts.Access not for the faint hearted especially in a rickety landrover.! Accomodation good, relies on solar power or generator. Would benefit from windup torches at bedside tables for overnight use.

Description
•So you want to experience New Zealand?•Be sure not to miss this!•Be ready to be inspired by this amazing experience.Nightingale Falls Farm Stay Retreat is a unique property situated on 120 Acres of bush and More pasture overlooking the Firth of Thames. From the very start of your retreat you feel the experience of adventure as you venture up to your accommodation. As you climb the hills you voyage through the farms various animals, most which are free range, grazing and doing as they please. A sense of adventure begins to tug at the heart whether you are an animal lover, enthusiastic for adventure, explorer and hiker or to get away from it all in total peace and tranquillity. There is something here for everyone, for every age group. Twinkingham Cottage features exquisite views from the comfort of your living room, whether warmed beside the wood fire or soaking in the warmth of the summer sun. The master bedroom has luxurious bedding and sea views, along with a second bedroom with single bunks. Twinkingham Cottage is fully self-contained with a kitchen gas cooktop and fridge making it easy to prepare a meal or snacks. Sleeps 5 in two bedrooms. Shantilly Cottage offers a luxurious queen sized bed with an en-suite looking out to the extensive bush and water views. It has facility for tea and coffee. Meals can be prepared in the main farmhouse kitchen for your convenience. It features a second bedroom, also with views with two single beds or can be converted into a large king.

Nightingale Falls offers a selection of activities including guided river bed exploring and gold panning, feed the animals farm tour including a visit to Nightingale Waterfall and meet the horses and maybe even ride!. You will be made to feel at home with your hosts Scott and Karyn and their four children. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone wishing an escape from the ordinary, or maybe just a well needed break from a hectic travel schedule or city life. The panoramic view from the cottages and the peaceful atmosphere can rest the soul to anyone who needs to find peace and tranquility. Less
